Traveling to Egypt

edited February 2010 in - North Africa
I need some advice on traveling to Egypt. I have always wanted to visit there and am finally taking the initiative and seeking more info so that I can hopefully go there towards the end of 2010.

Any advice would be appreciated - I already know the warnings of traveling as a single woman and am fully aware and prepared for this.

What I would like to know is who to book through, which travel agencies are the best, most affordable, etc. I would like to book a full service trip whereby my flights, accommodation, inter-Egypt traveling etc is all pre-booked so I dont need to worry about that.

Where are the best places to go? I would love to see the pyramids etc but also would love to be able to go swimming / snorkeling somewhere.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
